Reading this stuff was so interesting though! And this is my mother's side, my dad's side idk much about!! ! I'm thinking of doing ansectory test!! !

Edit: I like how one of my cousins did Ancectory's test and it actually said "Central Appalachian Settler"!

Some of my cousins in fact turned to their Celtic roots and became Celtic pagans...

I googled "Central Appalachian Settler" and this link was at the top of the list.

That IS surprising to me that this commercial DNA test you took lists "Central Appalachian Settler" as a distinct entity. As if hillbillies were a race unto themselves- even distinct from other Whites. And actually - in a way they ARE that- because the White exploration and settlement of the Appalachians was indeed spearheaded by one European ethnic group more than others- namely the Scotch-Irish. So for that reason I would think that your test would say "Scotch-Irish", rather than "central Appalachian Settler".

To make a long complicated story short: the Catholic Irish in Ireland are simply "the Irish", and the Protestants of northern Ireland are "the Scotch Irish" who settled there from Scotland when Ireland was subjugated by England in the 1600s. And then some of these Scotch settlers of Ireland moved on, and crossed the Atlantic to America, and ventured into the mountains of the Eastern US and ...invented our whole modern redneck culture.

White Supremacy is a way of thinking and acting. The race of the person thinking that way is not part of the definition. There are people of color who are white supremacists, there are Autistic NT supremacists.

The connection between these is closer than what people suspect. Normalisation of a hierarchical society is all pervasive. Just go to any organisation, there is always a pecking order.

If you can deconstruct the mind block in one you can fix the other.
